A wonderful and unique little dry sparkling rosé from Italy. Organic with a beautiful pink color, it is incredibly expressive on the nose with stunning floral and fruit notes. Super refreshing and balanced.
About the Winemaker:
Conceived from child bedtime warnings in the Old World, Il Mostro draws on the inspiration of single vineyard, responsibly farmed grapes and a deft touch in the cellar of Poggio Anima and takes it a step further. The inaugural releases hail from certified organically farmed fruit from fruit hillside plantings in Abruzzo. The Twines are ancestral method sparkling wines with fermentation finishing in bottle and the offerings highlighting the bright fruit flavors and salinity this estate in Chieti
Poggio Anima translates to ‘Hill of Soul.’ Going back to the concept of Poggio Anima we wanted to capture the ‘soul’ of each vineyard and grape. No manipulation, no water, sugar, etc. Just the pure expression of the fruit and site. I would argue that many wines have a ‘soul,’ but very few weeknight wines share this. Poggio Anima has come along to change this.
